Like roses adorning the gardens in June
Or lillies on the bank. so youth in its bloom,
The blossoms will wither when cold winds do blow
It is so with the youth when death lays them low.
We've often seen those in the morning of life 
Whose manners were pleasing whose prospects were bright
Who made like the flowers that wither at noon
Are blasted by death and laid in the tomb
May you my young friend well consider your time
[May wisdom and prudence and meekness be thine]
From folly and vice may you ever depar[illegible]
Nor [rest of line illegible]
[line illegible]
[line illegible]
May you [rest of line illegible]
[line illegible]
